Information from the NZ College of Clinical Psychologists about the Cannabis Legalisation and Control Referendum

The Cannabis Legalisation and Control Referendum will be held concurrent to the upcoming general election. In this referendum voters are asked to decide whether the recreational use of cannabis should become legal. The New Zealand College of Clinical Psychologists (NZCCP)[i] offers the following information about psychological issues relevant to the referendum. Our aim is to encourage and support New Zealanders to consider the issue and make an informed decision rather than promote a particular viewpoint.
